Following in the wake of the successful 3 ½-Litre Sapphire (renamed Sapphire 346) Sapphire 234 and 236 Saloons sharing a completely new body and chassis but has different engines-four-cylinder, 2290-cc (234) and six-cylinder, 2309-cc (236)-plus various other differences. The body features deep windows and a bonnet line that slopes sharply down to a traditional type radiator grille.
Dignity has long been associated with the products of this firm, whether intended to be owner- or chauffeur-driven. New at last year's Show, the Sapphire 234 and 236 (the suffix 4 or 6 indicating a four- or six-cylinder 2.3-litre engine) remain unchanged this year, except that the 236 is now available with a synchromesh gear box with central gear change lever, as an alternative to the Manumatic transmission. The 234 has a synchromesh gear box and central change. Both the 234 and 236 are similar in outward appearance, but different in character.
